What's a Hokie? We are.

At Virginia Tech, we're reimagining how education and technology intersect. This approach transforms the ways we teach and learn, perform research, and engage with communities around the world.

Professor Emmanuel Frimpong, graduate students Emma Hultin and Quentin Montgomery, and undergraduate student Ty Stephenson of the College of Natural Resources and Environment are gaining a better understanding of the bluehead chub, an ecosystem engineer in Southwest Virginia. Uncovering their secrets just may be the key to conservation efforts.

Hokies collaborate with diverse team members and cross the traditional lines between fields and disciplines to tackle global-scale problems.

We push the boundaries of knowledge in order to make a difference in the world. Members of the Hokie Nation have a clear vision of how we can serve in our personal, professional, and civic pursuits.

We are a force for positive change, driven by our motto, Ut Prosim (That I May Serve).

We are Hokies. Are you?
